Dating your teacher college

Every student had imagined the romance of falling for a teacher and every teacher had imagined what it would be like to run off with a student. Sex with anyone under the age of sixteen – however consenting - is illegal in the UK and any sexual relationship between a student and a teacher leads to the teacher’s instant dismissal.

While the story ran, the schoolgirl and her teacher were the objects of everyone’s vicarious interest. I’m not for one moment challenging the rightness of this.

Of course teachers are in positions of trusted authority and of course they’ll sometimes be the objects of student fantasy. Indeed, it can happen from time to time in any profession where the relationship between people is the key to getting the job done.

They must never abuse that authority or compromise their delicate role in the lives of young people. What I am challenging is the implication that good, responsible teachers won’t have feelings for their students which will sometimes be sexual. It doesn’t mean that these feelings of attraction will necessarily be acted upon: there are important boundaries which mustn’t be crossed.

You and your boyfriend needs to sit down and discuss the implications of staying together.

Obviously the consequences are more dire for him than they are for you, so if he decides to end things, I think it's important that you respect that.

In the schools I visited, everyone was talking about it because everyone, I suspect, had an investment in the story. I don’t know how many teachers would admit publicly to their interest in this story, however.You should be willing to work with me as long as I'm willing to work with you.If I bother to come up to you & ask for help, you should be willing to help your customer up to the point where you aren't legally allowed to or at which point the universities simple metaphor.Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears wrote: Between August and November 2006, Ms.Chase developed a relationship with a female student where she would have her over to her house for cookouts and to occasionally spend the night.It's true that you are both consenting adults, but your boyfriend is still breaking an extremely important code of ethics that he's required to uphold for his position.
